Howdy from KC-
I been reading this thread on OA elections with interested.
I was elected to OA 1.5 years after I got my eagle (yes I was a young
eagle-13.5) and six months after receiving my God and Country. I had
wanted to be a member of OA for a long time but it wasn't my time. I was
the first eagle in my troop and I felt desired it. It wasn't till I
realize it is a honor camping society and not frat. When Richie joined
Tigers this last fall the first thing after signing up to be a Unit Commish
I did was renew my OA membership in KC.
OA is one of the few organizations that non members elect the membership.
As with any election (including politics) the best person does not always
get elected. Over months and years that person intergity will shine and
they will be elected (either as boy or leader).
It is tough to let the boys make the choice. But as adults we don't make
the right choice everytime.
